Black Wine is preparing to release their fourth studio album, Yell Boss, on August 12 via Don Giovanni Records. Hailing from New Brunswick, New Jersey, the band is comprised of Jeff Schroeck on guitar, J Nixon on bass and Miranda Taylor on drums. With Yell Boss, the trio unleashes a dense punk-pop sound of towering guitars and a rattling rhythm section – a sound that is as original and engaging as it is concise.
The self-defined “no-core” band doesn’t hold their sound to any defining genre. “Komrades,” is an upbeat, hook-ridden punk track loaded emotive vocal harmonies. The depth of the record comes through with “Rime,” a heavier track with looming, post-punk guitars and gruffer vocals sure to inspire fans to stomp and thrash. Check out “Rime”
The members also come from a long line of Jersey bands including the Ergs!, Full of Fancy, and Hunchback. Determined to continue a sense of operative collectivism, all three members sing and contribute to songwriting.
